Pool screen damage

OK, apologies if this is a dumb question but why were so many pool screens left out?
If the advice was to store furniture then would the screens also have been better off in a garage?

The pool screen is a permanent structure comprising a steel frame covered in a fine mesh. It's all bolted down to a concrete deck.

Have a look at the photo in my profile and you can see it in the background.

Thanks Mick, for some reason I was thinking of the child safety screens. I obviously need a holiday. 8 weeks to go.

No problem. They are the first things that come down into the garage when we arrive. Nobody younger than 71 round the pool deck though.

www.american-pools.com-pool-screen-enclosure/

have a look at that link it will show you what they are like

it is somthing that you will find over the pool at a villa but not very often used at a hotel pool, they keep bugs out so it is s very fine mesh screen and due to their nature they can be susceptible to damage

It is a real shame that the panels cant be taken down easily during a storm, but then that may leave the frames more susceptible to damage due to the nature of the construction of the screens

I just think it's great that there is a thread about pool screens ... rather than much much worse

yes it is amazing really the odd shingle here and there, some trees and branches,pool screens, and a little bit of localized flooding, it is so much better than it could have been
